By connecting our substations and office with fiber optic cable, we will create a truly smart grid that will provide us with more automation capabilities, ultimately increasing the reliability of our electric service to members.
This endeavor also falls in line with our mission to power communities and empower members. Broadband is the electricity of the 1930s and 1940s. Remember, in 1930, fewer than 10% of farms had access to electricity. Much like we did with electricity in 1938, we’re going to provide real, affordable broadband to our members.
